MOMENTS IN TIME

There is a season for everything

With a purpose every time,

With reason and with meaning;

Appointed moments in our lives.

The sacred time of birth

As we welcome our first breath,

As we journey to the end

Where there is the time of death.

There’s a moment we do plant

As we sow what we shall reap,

And there’s a time for the harvest

So there’s plenty we can eat.

Emotional upheavals do occur

When with our words we kill,

But through repentance and forgiveness

There is a time to heal.

Our tears will cascade

And there is a time to mourn,

But times of refreshing they will come

When laughter will be born.

There’s a time for solitude

As we reflect upon our life,

And we refrain from all the noise;

The negativity or strife.

There’s a time for prosperity

As we gain and multiply,

But the moment where we lose

Inevitably will arise.

There are moments we accumulate

From the fruit of all our labor,

But equally a time to dispose

When things will lose their flavour.

There are moments when our silence

Is the wisest thing to do,

But there’s the imperative of speaking out

To project what’s good and true.

There’s that wretched time of war

Where greed and power meet,

But we rejoice when freedom and liberty

Will give us lots of peace.

There are moments in our journey

In this life that is bestowed,

But the most crucial is to fear God

Where reverence it is shown.

“To everything there is a season.  A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to throw away; A time to tear, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; A time of war, and a time of peace.”  Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:  Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.  For God will bring every work into judgement, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.”  Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
